The National Park Service has started construction on the Twin Creeks Science and Education Center at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in southeast Tennessee. Atlanta-based Hedges Construction is building the 15,000-sf, $4.4 million research facility, which will support NPS's initiative to document and protect all life forms in the half-million-acre national park. Designed by Lord, Aeck and Sargent, Atlanta, the facility will house research laboratories, offices, curatorial space for collected specimens, and educational space.
